I have been contemplating my next quilt for quite some time. It has been a year, almost to the day. In the past I have avoided talking about it as it was too painful. It is still painful but I feel like I am ready to move forward. Last july we lost a sweet baby at 12 weeks. It has been a rough year. There have been a lot of ups and a lot of downs. There has been a lot of healing as well. When it happened I wanted to make something in memory but I couldn’t, I wasn’t ready to face that. Now that it has been a year and is the anniversary I have been thinking about it a lot. I feel ready. I have started thinking about what kind of quilt I would want to make. I want something that was happy feeling to remember how it was for the short time we had that baby. I want something summery and fresh to always remember the time of year it was and the feelings we were having at that time. I searched through my fabric stash and only one thing really fit and that was my two prints of lime Flea Market Fancy prints. I knew it had been discontinued but didn’t think it would be too hard to gather up most of the line. I started swapping and buying little bits here and there. I have been able to gather quite a bit, but a lot of the fabrics I can’t afford or are seemingly unattainable. I don’t know if anyone reads my blog but if you do and you know of where I might be able to get some of this fabric, please let me know 🙂 Leave it to me to make something like this so difficult, I cannot believe this fabric and the rush to get it from so many people! I guess I can, it is so beautiful! I took a picture of what I have, it makes me happy just looking at those colors 🙂
I know that I want to make it baby sized. I am thinking about patterns. I am always drawn to the coin quilts. I saw a pattern that I just fell in love with the other day. You can find it here
I am going to have to think about it. I am glad to be at this point and finally planning it out. I feels freeing.
